Selecting The Right Location For Your Franchise Restaurants

If you’re looking to try to become a franchise owner, there are a lot of small - but incredibly important - details that you’ll need to know. Opening franchise restaurants is not a straightforward process; there are many factors that can make or break your success, and you’ll need to know the right path to take. Perhaps one of the most important things to consider is a process that takes place before the first brick is laid: selecting a location! This process is not as easy as it sounds. We break down the most important factors that go into selecting a proper franchise restaurant location.

Look At Population

It’s no secret that you’ll likely have more success if you choose to put your franchise restaurants in highly populated areas. However, you shouldn’t just be looking at the base population of a given area. Instead, look at the trends surrounding it. Is the population rising steadily, or are people moving away? If it’s trending upward, it could be a good long-term investment! This can also apply to smaller towns and cities whose populations are growing.

Ease of Access

Let’s be honest; nobody is going to want to go to a restaurant that requires you to do a U-turn or cross several lanes of traffic just to get in the parking lot. It might sound silly, but ease of access is incredibly important for attracting potential customers. Look for places that don’t require a lot of fancy driving to get to. If you can find one, you should strongly consider it for your franchise restaurant!

Site History

If you’re looking at sites that have been used in the past, take a look at the previous tenants. What was their success record like? What kind of establishment did they run? What was their deciding factor on leaving the site? If you find that their success and leaving factors are unfavorable, it’s best to steer clear of that location. Ideally, you want to find locations where the previous owners experienced success.
